Advertising on Bing seems to overlooked a lot of the time and it really shouldn’t be. A lot of your customers could actually be on Bing. When thinking about advertising on Bing its important to consider who is more likely to use Bing. Studies show that Bing users are more likely to be:

 

  • In the US

One really great reason to consider advertising on Bing is that because it is the lesser used search platform there is less competition. Yes there aren’t as many users, buy because of the type of people using Bing you get more quality visibility. Quality over quantity is really important to consider when increasing conversions.
